As great (and important) as traveling is, there's no denying it can wreak havoc on your hair. From frizz-inducing climates and swims in the ocean to cramped naps on planes and open windows on car rides, there are plenty of ways your hair can become unmanageable when you're on vacation (or simply on the go). That's why it's so important to own one of the best travel flat irons — these genius, pint-sized styling tools are designed to fit in your purse so you can always have a form of hair insurance with you; some are even cordless!
When travel-friendly hair straighteners first came onto the market, they were pretty much just smaller, less powerful versions of their full-sized counterparts. In recent years, however, companies have perfected the technology and design, meaning many of these mini flat irons can stand in for your everyday, at-home straightener. Some of these tools even double as a curling iron or brush; and best of all, they won't break the bank.
Whether you're looking for a teeny, tiny flat iron to tame fly-aways and baby hairs or a heavy-duty, three-in-one tool that pretty much does it all, you'll find the best of the best on this list, below.
